Most Ridiculous Moment - August 9, 2015
If it's Sunday, it must be time for another round with Donald Trump, who is increasingly the cause of, and solution to, Beltway Pundit problems. Trump, a former game show host turned lunatic Presidential candidate, has recently alienated African-Americans, Hispanics, Veterans, Women, and Fox News Viewers, and has united America is their dislike for him, even as he is the leading Republican candidate for President.
This is clearly unacceptable, and among others, the media seems desperate to build up as an alternative Jon Kasich, who was on ABC and NBC, where Chuck Todd generally served up softball questions, like asking him how he feels being compared him to the Pope. Kasich declined to criticize Donald Trump, but did deny climate change is settled science. On ABC he distanced himself from other Republicans, by saying government needs to help the mentally ill, people in prison, and drug addicts. Senator Cory Booker was on the same show arguing for criminal justice reform, and for restoring
the Voting Rights Act.
Also on that show, Rick Perry talked up mandatory sonograms, while Mike Huckabee argued for providing Fifth Amendment and Fourteenth Amendment protections to zygotes.
But of course the big news was, again, Donald Trump, who again on all three Sunday Talk Shows. The pundits simply cannot believe that this unserious person is leading in the polls, but they also cannot stop having him
on their shows, either.
Matthew Dowd complained about “a blending of entertainment and political news that we've arrived at where selfie replaces seriousness,” and quote “the idea that we have a bombastic, bitter, and belligerent culture that exists
in politics today and he seems
to represent that."
Jon Heileman explained he did his level best to destroy Donald Trump, saying he quote, “did a focus group with people who liked Donald Trump a lot or were leaning towards Donald Trump. And I gave them a lot of negative information about Trump, like as if they knew: single-payer health care, donations, all of that stuff. And they didn't care. They were not moved off their enthusiasm for Trump. In fact, they kept rationalizing.”
Trump himself whined “I had by far the toughest question,” and claimed “Some of the candidates told me I won the debate."
He also complained that “we're trying to be so politically correct that nobody can say anything anymore,” and asserted that his supporters “are women voters, largely. And I'm doing very well with the women voters."
He also said “I've always had a great relationship to the women, and “I'm very much into the whole thing of helping people and helping women,” and “I will be phenomenal to the women. I want to help women.”
On his remarks about Megyn Kelly, he said he would not apologize: “No, not at all. I said - look, she asked me a very nasty question. I have nothing against Megyn Kelly, but she asked me a very, very nasty question,” and quote “she was angry, very angry. She was very angry."
He said he went to the Wharton School, where no one ever thought about deviant things like menstruation, and said “only a deviant would think of what people said,”
and “only like literally a sick person
would think that.”
So the media is trying to give you all the negative information about Donald Trump, but he just won't go away, perhaps because he was on all three shows two weeks in a row. Most of Trump's supporters are women, and has had a great relationship to the women, even the ones he's made sexist comments about, and if you're offended, then you're the one who's 'sick' and 'deviant.'
And that's the most ridiculous thing that happened this Sunday.
